Medical Micro-Needling, also referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy, is a breakthrough remedy that treats wrinkles, pigmentation, scars (including burn scars, acne scars and surgical scars) and stretch marks.
Clinical studies have shown that micro needling produces channels in the dermis, which sufficiently stimulate the body’s natural defenses to repair and produce concentrated amounts of collagen and proteins to the treated areas of skin. This increases the thickness of your skin up to 80% smoothing scars, visibly reducing stretch marks and wiping out wrinkles.

How does Micro-Needling work?
The treatment introduces fine needles to the skin to create microscopic channels. In doing so, the dermis is encouraged to produce new collagen and elastin, which generates new skin cell growth. The skin then becomes thicker, plumper and more youthful. Serums that are applied to the skin after the treatment are also up to 1,000 times more effective because the pores are opened so the product is absorbed deeper into the skin.
Is there any down time and does it hurt?
There is very little down time, your skin will look and feel mildly sunburnt for about 24-48 hours after the treatment and could start to flake slightly the next 1-3 days. This is a normal reaction and results will become visible as soon as 1 week after your treatment. We use a highly concentrated numbing cream on the area so there is little to no pain involved in the treatment.
Are there any side effects?
Some immediate side effects include redness, flaking and possibly mild irritation on the treated areas, but these effects usually subside within 24-72 hours and can vary from person to person.
How many treatments will I need?
To see significant results, we recommend a series of 4-6 treatments spaced four weeks apart.
